Joel worked 6 sessions with our 20 week old Lab. Our puppy was energic and basically out of control. Joel's calm demeanor and confident/kind/contolled instructional sessions were just what our dog needed. During the second week we saw marked improvement in compliance and control. Joel also was available for advice and knowledgeable about little things to help improve our control and dog management. I would highly recommend Joel for your dog training and please feel free to connect with me for further info. 704 724 0234 Thanks. John Wyllie
Tina obviously is a dog lover. This was the first time we've left our dog behind & we I was a nervous mom. Our Elvis can be a runner & we needed a safe yard so Tina stayed at our home for 4 days. We knew our dog & home were both safe. Tina did a good job. I would reccommend her & use her again.
We have had only one session with Lena and have already seen amazing results with our 1 y.o. dog. Lena gives hands-on training to you and your dog. We are training our pup to be a therapy dog, and he is already well on his way to having the skills needed to pass the test. Well done Lena Skov! Glad we found you on Thumbtack!!!
I discussed training both my puppy and older dog with Kevin. He is very professional and seemed to know what he's doing, so no qualms about his services. Unfortunately, we had an unusual and very costly repair come up suddenly for our home, so are putting off training for now.
I am so happy I went with Leashlife as my dog walker. My dog loves getting the extra attention and I never have to worry about him while I am at work. They leave notes and give updates on a regular basis, I would recommend them to anyone. I also love seeing their Instagram post of their other dogs they are all adorable and happy!
I have worked with Holland K9 services for 3.5 years and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone. When we adopted our dog Buddy, he was so high energy that we had to let him run off leash to burn that energy off and be a happy dog. However he was completely unresponsive to commands off leash, and would charge (friendly and excited, but still) any dog or person he spotted. After a bad experience with another dog training group, we found John. He helped us to transition to using an E-collar (shock collar) in order to enforce off-leash commands. I was initially nervous about that type of training due to our prior experience but with John it went great. Buddy was never fearful like he was with the other trainers. Our dog became wonderful and basically 100% reliable off-leash, and all of us were so much happier. We hired him again when we got our second dog, and he helped us train her as well as brush up Buddy on his skills again. Training with him is definitely worth every cent.
I was very impressed with the training my dog received. Kacey was the most difficult dog I have ever owned. We could not have anyone over to our home or take her out in public. After her training, she Is a different dog. She listens and we can now take her out anywhere. I can’t say enough good things about this company!! Definitely would recommend to anyone!!!
My dog Rose Just loves Meghan! She has a genuine love of dogs and it shows through in her care for them! I have used Meghan for training and dog walking and am very pleased with both! I would definitely recommend her to others!
She is professional and very punctual. Loves animals and the training is great. My dog is happy when she gets here.
About 7 years ago, we hired Fran to train our Chow puppy, who was out of control. I saw an article she had written in a magazine and was intrigued by her writings. In 2 weeks he was learning all the commands she taught US! I learned so much from her on dog behavior I suggested she have her own TV show, because she truly is better than Ceaser Milan and Victoria Stillwell. Fran doesn't use harsh training methods, she trains by the "reward method", and she LOVES her clients, she is professional, fun, and has more knowledge about training than anyone I have ever worked with! I recently rescued another Chow (named CUJO) that was his name from his previous owners and he is about 8 years old from the shelter I volunteer at and he was apparently abused and conditioned to a home with fighting, and Fran has worked with him and me to desensitize him to banging, knocking, any noise that would signify he was in an abusive environment. He also had a very negative reaction to people touching each , hugging, I had to be very careful when I got him home. He was undernourished and sick.....but now he's coming along wonderfully. HE LOVES HER and so do I. She helped me with a new diet for him for the health issues he was having. She is knowledgeable in every aspect of dog training, agression, agility, puppies, Good Canine Citizens, companion dogs and I recommend her highly. She goes out of her way to do her very best for you and your dog. She just isn't your typical "dog trainer" she absolutely loves what she does and puts 200% into her work ! I highly recommend Fran. !
I am out of town a lot, so Will from Dog Pro services takes care of my dog Bruno. I like that he also trained my dog with basic obedience. Training was easy and it's affordable Will is an awesome guy.
We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!
Nick with Alpha Moves Dog Training was very the very thing Penny my Leonberger and I needed. Penny is very stubborn and i was at my end for at home training. Nick did a great job teaching Penny and my self the Communication need for a great man/ dog relationship. You will not be disappointed with Alpha Moves Dog Training.
Angel took care of our two cats while we were on a beach trip and our dog accompanied. Next time we hire Angels Paw Academy our dog will be at home. All went well and we are pleased with her.
Very professional and reliable, did a wonderful job with my dog and made sure we understood every part of the training process. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.
Liz (and Meritt) did an awesome job of training Spartacus - our cockapoo - and us! What they do at CCT is everything a dog owner would want - they truly love what they do and it shows in how they help dogs be such great family members and how Spartacus loves going there for socializing and training with other dogs. I could not imagine having a dog without them.
We had a great overall experience with Glenn as he trained our dog and us. :) Glenn was patient, well-informed and friendly. He answered all of our follow-up questions throroughly and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the training process. The one caveat I would suggest is to establish a communication plan upfront with him. Once we addressed that email was his preferred channel, things went more smoothly. We would recommend Glenn and his family to anyone looking for an educated dog trainer!
I am very pleased with this service! Our first consultation with Awesome Pawsabilities brought remarkable results with our puppy, Floyd. Jenn and Annmarie took copious notes and listened to all my questions and concerns, then proceeded to get right to training. Jenn worked with Floyd on his impulse control and within minutes I could see improvement. We received a comprehensive training plan and are looking forward to our next session. I highly recommend Awesome Pawsabilities!
Fran is a wonderful and talented dog trainer! She comes to you and works on whatever your needs are. She has a great personality. My dog loves her (and so do my cats). We love her gentle and fun approach with our golden. She gives the whole family the skills we need to continue the work after she leaves. She is always available if we need help in between sessions too. Her group classes are great too! I recommend her to everyoe.
I'm a college student looking for a job. I own two dogs, and I am good with animals. I get along with animals.
